SecondSight, a Bloomington, IN-based emerged from stealth with the launch of the insurance industry's first AI-driven platform for 'inside-out' underwriting and an oversubscribed $3 million seed round of financing.
The round was led by Tim Crown, with participation from Indiana Ventures, Cook Ventures, and Flywheel Fund, among other investors.
SecondSight is the first AI-driven platform that brings telematics to digital risk. With a rapidly growing customer roster, SecondSight expects the new funding to accelerate market adoption and impact to cyber insurance industry.
"The cyber insurance gap is growing and the underwriting process for cyber insurance is getting increasingly more technical and time-consuming as requirements for getting coverage increase in complexity," said Reuben Vandeventer, CEO, and founder of SecondSight. "SecondSight was created to help businesses make sense of their digital assets — and find the true digital risk and value in them. Before SecondSight, the marketplace has had a million different viewpoints on cybersecurity and digital risk. SecondSight recognizes that cybersecurity and true digital risk are really about assets and liabilities. Digital risk is only meaningful and actionable for business stakeholders when it's connected to the bottom line. We founded SecondSight to offer a fundamentally different approach to underwriting that connects the entire digital risk ecosystem while offering a powerful autonomous system."
SecondSight goes beyond external risk control audits by inventorying and categorizing all digital assets, analyzing thousands of risk facets, and calculating dollarized impact.
